I had a fixed gear bike with a QR on the rear only, to facilitate flipping the wheel to change gear ratios. I used it for club time trials. I would ride out to the time trial in the lower ratio, then flip the wheel to the higher ratio for the race, then back again for the ride home. Of course it was the old fashioned internal cam type QR.
